Easter Egg Hunt Again!

If you came to the 2019 Easter Egg Hunt, you know that it was wildly successful.  Jam packed, in fact.  One of the restoration society members said at the end of the event, "We're fools if we don't do this again." 

Well, we're doing it again.

The 2020 Mantua Restoration Society, Inc., Easter Egg Hunt will be on Saturday, April 11, from 10 a.m. til noon at the Mantua Center School building.

As last year, there will be a bounce house,a visit from the Easter Bunny (photo ops included, of course), games, little stuffed animals, and other things still in the planning stages.  

This year there will be four egg hunt groups: 0-3 years, 4-5 years, 6-7-8 years, and 9-10 years old.  Children need to bring their own baskets.

Last year, the Civic Center was full and then some.  This year, with the hunt being at the school building, space should be less of an issue. 

C'mon out! 

Tell Us Your Stories!

We'd love to hear and share your Tales of Mantua Center School.  They can be about anything you remember: a favorite teacher, a prank, a snowball fight, (are kids still allowed to have those?) or almost anything else.  We'll try hard not to embarrass anyone, and you can always request to remain anonymous (although the statute of limitations has long since expired!).  Please tell your friends about this because we'd like to keep that page full and we see it as a possible way to reconnect with long-lost classmates from Mantua Center School days.

All stories can be submitted through our Contact Us page.


On September 5th, 2013, the National Park Service placed our Mantua Center School building on the National Register of Historic Places. Since the N.P.S. is in charge of such wonders as Yos-

emite, Yellowstone, Denali, the Everglades, and the Redwoods, it is no wonder that they recognize beauty and worth when they see it. This is a very big step forward for our building!  

     This placement opens the way for Federal grants for historic preservation and renovation at a time when communities and governments across the country recognize the economic value of  renovating these buildings.  From rural communities to major  cities, these solid buildings continue to serve their communities' needs.

     All of us in MaRSI must, and will, pursue every avenue of funding available to us and, like the" Minutemen" of old, stand ever ready to lend our minds, our hearts, and our energies to the task of refurbishing the jewel at our township's heart and making it, once again, the heart of our community.  WE CAN DO THIS!
